    I personally favor American Staffordshire Terriers (have a hub on it) and Pitbulls

    I love Huskies, but I think they're better left in their natural environment rather than keeping them as pets.

      Prepare for lots of biting, scratching, pooping, peeing, and chewing!

      Somehow the cute face makes it all ok hmm

    Border Collies. Fantastic obedient and intelligent dogs. They even round up the kids for you. Every home should have one.

    Mutts! big_smile

    I don't have a dog currently, but 4 of the 5 dogs my parents have had in my lifetime have been mutts and they've all been wonderful. Their exact ancestry is uncertain because they've all been rescue dogs, but we think it's been two lab/hound mixes, one lab/Saint Bernard, and one mystery combo that produced what looked and acted exactly like a white Golden Retriever. I think there may have been a Kuvasz involved, but they're not very common in our area, so who knows? The (probable) purebred was a lab.

      My favorite is the Min pin or Miniature Pinschers,  the king of toy breeds
      I love they way they bark and people look around for a huge dog just to find one six inches high from the ground level!!

      I had a Basset Hound, she was a great dog and I miss her dearly.

      Right now the best dog I have ever had is the German Shepard in my avatar. He is high maintenance but I do not mind giving him the attention he craves.

      My Chihuahua is also a great little dog, she is probably the perfect pet. She is the best guard dog I have ever owned.

    The Great Pyrenees! They're gorgeous, they're fiercely protective, and they are one of the most loyal, affectionate, and gentle breeds out there when it comes to their family.

    The one that does not bark, bite, does not look like the Hound of Baskervilles and goes out by himself.
    The cat.

    I like huskies. They're so cuddly. But they shed too much.

    But my favorite dog of all is the one that lives elsewhere and never poops on my lawn. I love other people's dogs. I do not keep one myself for many many reasons, but dogs are great.

    I love em all, but the last dog I had was a rat terrier, very loveable, but mischivious. She shed a lot also. But pretty obedient.  Unless in large crowd, I think she got over stimulated.

    Honestly I had a dog when I was a teenager, that was just a mutt. He had chiuahua, in him but who knows what else, he looked more like a fox, with a bushy tail, short slender body and long snout. He was the best most loyal dog we ever had. He followed us kids everywhere. And defended us against everything. I miss that dog.

    American Eskimos - They are one of the smartest dogs there are, plus, they are very sensitive to human emotions. And GORGEOUS!

    I think my dog sitting next to me would be mad if i didn't say Pekingese.  She is great!  I think that this is my favorite breed.  She is the funniest dog i have ever had.

    This is a no-brainer, there can only be one favorite dog for me and that is the yorkie.  I have two and they are just over-the-top fun!  These crazy little guys have turned me into a complete yorkie fanatic and now I find myself with a whole collection of yorkie stuff. Last year I even sent out yorkie Christmas cards (yes, I know Christmas is not PC, but ask me if I care) and my daughter has a yorkie backpack for school. She's as bad if not worse than I am.

      Hi, Cons. You are welcome to come and TRY to train my (white) Golden Retriever, Dasher. He knows just how to reduce me to a raging, pleading heap of frustration before he will regally acknowledge my existence, let alone my "commands"!

    I've owned, trained, and bred many dog breeds. At the very top of my list is the Great Dane. I have 2 males now, and Hamlet is the smartest dog I've ever worked with or owned.

    A distant second would be a golden retriever.

      I am with you Habee. Great Danes are the best. Once you have had a Dane for a pet, they become a family member and not just a pet.  Their personality is so strong and they will take after their master.
      I would say the American Eskimo is my 2nd favorite.  These dogs are gorgeous as mentioned earlier and they do get very attached to their owners and are very lovable dogs also and protective as the Great Dane is.

    I have two Boxers. They are full of personality and I love them. Also love mastifs. I'm a big guy, so I like big muscular dogs.
